Is there anything better than Galeries Lafayette to embody Paris heritage? On the occasion of European Heritage Days 2018, this department store opens its doors for a visit mixing history, architecture and anecdotes.

For the eighth year in a row, the emblematic store of Boulevard Haussmann opens its doors on European Heritage Days.

On September 15-16, 2018, discover the story of Galeries Lafayette from its creation back in 1894 to nowadays. A fun and interactive tour takes you to the universe of Parisian department stores. Secrets of this emblematic monument are also revealed from the first floor to the panoramic terrace.

Visits are held outside the opening hours of the department store (in other words, Galeries Lafayette will be all yours!), meaning from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Saturday 15 and from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Sunday 16. If the visits are free of charge, it's mandatory to book a ticket by the end of late August on Galeries Lafayette Haussmann website.
